Upcycled Lamp: A beer bottle and cardboard lamp by Alejandra Castelao

Most of the time upcycle design is made from one particular material or item. It’s not often you’ll see a combination of two discarded materials.
Well, industrial designer Alejandra Castelao from Mexico City, currently based in San Francisco, designed the ‘Upcycled Lamp‘. A wonderful and transparent lamp design that shows how great two discarded materials can go together.
